Academic HonestyStudents enrolled in University of Washington Distance Learning courses are expected to observe the same code of academic honesty required of other University of Washington students. Violation of this code can result in academic penalties, such as receiving a failing grade in the course and other disciplinary actions.
Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating on examinations and plagiarism, the latter meaning offering the language or ideas of someone else as one's own. Plagiarism may range from failure to credit isolated formulas, sentences, paragraphs, or ideas to entire articles copied from books, periodicals, speeches, or the writings of other students.
Situations involving academic misconduct for noncredit courses will be reviewed by a UW Educational Outreach Committee on Academic Conduct. This committee is composed of advisory board members for the certificate program in which the student is enrolled. If evidence of academic misconduct is established, students will be given a failing grade for the course and any refund of tuition fees will be denied.
